Subject: Stream only,
no track labels.
Subject: Ron high
Pigpen high in the mix, at least in Truckin'.
How great was PITB before Donna joined?
Subject: good recording sampled poorly
sounds like 56k sound 5 star for show 2 and a half for not being able to transfer
Subject: BEWARE: NOISE REDUCTION
When noise reduction is applied too heavily it introduces artifacts and digi-noise into the sound. The between-song portions and tunings on here feature such artifacts.
I'm not posting this to be critical, just pointing out that sometimes "cleaning" these old tapes up presents new problems.
The show itself is fantastic. As there are other copies that haven't had noise reduction applied, I highly recommend streaming it.
A 5-star performance, reduced to 3 for the unnecessary sound artifacts.
Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" December 14, 1971 at the Hill Auditorium, Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A.
~~~~~~~~! PIGPEN & KEITH !~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~ very rare show ~~~~~~~~~
Super 71' Soundboard!
~Hi-Fi Stereo-Phonic Sound~
I "Highly Recommend" adding this show to your 1971 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.
Remember to get the next night too, December 15th: http://www.archive.org/details/gd1971-12-15.sbd.miller.97718.sbeok.flac16
There aren't enough shows with Pigpen and Keith. These two incredible performers add so much fun, syncopation and rhythmical dimension to the GRATEFUL DEAD you have to get up and dance.
Pigpen and Keith made a special "Magic" only seen on earth for a brief moment in time, but it was captured on tape and is now available on the Internet Archive for all of us to hear, hopefully forever. It's too good to be true, but it is.
Billy's layin' down a solid in the pocket groove that makes you get up and dance. Jerry, Bobby, and Phil are of course amazingly incredible and the vocals are strong, confident, smooth and melodic.
This show is a "National Treasure".
This show is as close to perfection as you can get without dematerializing.
A "MUST HAVE" show from 1971.
"Classic 1971 Sound"
This show is fresh, exciting, interesting, fascinating, wonderful, and professional.
5 big fat Stars for the mix, recording, performance and transfer. Thanks Jeff, we owe you one.

PSS: It's a shame these "new" fans of the GRATEFUL DEAD just don't appreciate Pigpen and his contributions he made to the band.

This was a nice show, with excellent sound quality. Not quite a 5, but clearly a good strong 4. Favorite tune: GDTRFB baby!!!
Subject: Sounds great!
Definitely an upgrade to the previous sources found here. I'm glad to see someone finally clean this one up a little. This has always been one of my favorite '71's, but now I'm able to appreciate it's greatness even more. None of the hiss that was especially distracting during the quieter songs.
Thanks Jeff! Time to go listen to it, now. I'll probably have more, later.
edit:Wow, I forgot that these early Jack Straws had Bob singing lead the whole song, instead of switching back and forth between he and Jerry. Still, it's excellent!
Also, one of the best Other One suites of the year, without question!
